121.4g, 30" length. Stones include turquoise, serpentine, jet, jasper, and shells. Acquired from a private collection in Arizona. Unsigned. Has Heard Museum tag stating "A Quam." The collector was informed by the Heard Museum that this was made by Andrew Emerson Quam. The string is cotton and still secure. Excellent condition, no chips to the bird fetishes. The word “heishi” means “shell,” although today it is often used to describe the cut style of beads that are small, flat, disc-shapes.
